Avegant Glyph Headphones & VR Headset to be Showcased at CES 2015 – Details



Avegant Glyph - White

There have been many Kickstarter success stories last year, out of them only few make it too far, and Avegant’s Glyph Headphones is one of them. The first prototype showed up in December 2013, which went on to be the crowd funded on Kickstarter on early January 2014. Now jumping to this year, the company is ready to show off its final working prototype at the CES 2015 this week.

Avegant Glyph Headphones

The Avegant Glyph is not just headphones, but it work as VR glasses too. It will sport an HDMI input and would be able to connect phones, tablets, computers, as well as game consoles. At the top of the headphones inside, the device packs eye virtual retinal display that can create a picture with ever needing a screen. Meaning, you don’t necessarily need a phone to be insert in the device like the Gear VR and Google Cardboard DIY VR glasses.

The device is targeted at people who’d rather watch movies or simply use it as a headphone, though it can also handle gaming. The whole design was meant to be little less awkward considering the fact that how bulky these VR headsets can get, Gear VR, though, it might still be weird to feel a pair of eye-holes on top of your head.

Unlike most headset displays which are built around a small digital screen the Glyph creates an image by reflecting a low-powered color LED onto an array of two million tiny mirrors. Then, these micromirrors shape the light into a two-dimensional image, which is beamed straight onto the wearer’s retina.

Company is all set to demo their device and will start taking pre-order at a price tag of $499, which is very less than the combination of the Gear VR and Note 4. While a bit on the pricey side when compared to the Oculus Rift at $350. Though, this type of display technology is yet to come on any device, where you don’t necessarily need a separate display screen. The device will retail at a price tag of $599 later this year in autumn.
